Specialties

Dr. James D Helman has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

wonderful

Dr.Helman is a wonderful doctor,very caring,understanding and a great listener, he doessnt push things on yo that yu dont want or dont feel comfortable talking about, he's got a great sense of humor, and makes you feel comfortable and at ease, he doesnt pressure you to make descions you are not ready to make(unless its a serious thing like surgery that you need in order to help you then he does give you a little bit of a push) he encourages you instead of forcing you or pressing you to make choices,descions anything like that, he's wonderful, i would deffinetly suggest him to anyone looking for a really good,pain doctor or anesthesiologist
